wasn't Crunchyroll always legit?



I brought a DVD few years ago a Anime series, in mid way I noticed there was two words at top left side that said "Crunchyroll".. That series is in English language and Subtitles.. Later on I found out about this website, I ask a friend about this site and the DVD.. He told me that this site used to show illegal steaming animes. =0 But that was long time ago, and he told me that this site is now legal.. They cleaned up lot! I don't know if they changed owner or just the people that was helping the Owner with this site.

But that was the only one I seen from was that DVD.

But am glad this site is now legit and that I didn't experience any of that in the past.

It did have some online game didn't it? or was I dreaming?

I also used to love the fact you could put music on your page and have those stupidly long avatars (avi's were the shiz back then)

I remember joining to watch older J dramas, commercials and music videos. Currently the drama section is very lacking in older content

I was here back in the non-legit days. Didn't have an account, but watched the shows. Was confused when they first went cooperate.

Was CR a piracy site before?
Wat?


Yyyyeppers. Back in its little fan-startup day, offered fansubs and fan-simulcasts like they do today, only without those nasty things called "licenses".

Saying the word "Crunchyroll" was the big bad Boogeyman for all the Bubble-era anime companies who wanted to blame Those Nasty Internet Pirates for why they weren't selling enough single-volume DVD's--The same way studios want to blame Pirate Bay every time a movie doesn't make enough in the theaters.

Back in the Bubble-era 00's, before we had anime streaming, if you so much as HINTED on anime discussions that you were downloading "grey-market" digisubs off of BitTorrent--even if you destroyed them later to buy the commercial disks, and got them from responsible sites that removed them after they were licensed--you were slapped with the Scarlet C.

That was "uphill both ways," was it not? And if the coal gave out, there was always that hand-cranked magnet inside the coil of copper. . .

Haha... yep, both ways up hill in 4 feet of snow. I forgot that.


are you guys being serious??
